Vladimir Lennon created Communist International, or “Comintern” in 1919. Comintern’s purpose and mission was to spread communism throughout the world by any means necessary. It was designed to train Marxists within a country to spread propaganda and unrest with the idea that this unrest would lead, inevitably, to the adoption of Communist/Marxist ideology.
In 1928 the sixth Congress of Comintern formed a strategy to bring Marxism to the United States of America. The Marxists understood why and how the Bolshevik revolution was successful. In Russia at the time there was a very thin layer of hyper rich and aristocrats. There were very few people considered middle class. The majority of the population was the working poor. By contrast, in the United States, although there were many hyper rich (even today that is true) the middle class was numerically large and happy. The mass of the working poor were, as are today, relatively few.
So, how to foment a Communist/Marxist revolution in the United States of America when the economic and cultural conditions are not favorable? W. Cleon Skousen, a former FBI agent, wrote a book entitled The Naked Communist.  (Skousen, 1958) It answers that question well and the fruits of that strategy, outlined in his book, seems to be harvested today. The 45 points in the goals were read into the congressional record in 1963. Many of them seem to have been met. For example:
“15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.”
“17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”
“19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations that are under Communist attack.”
“20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, [and] policy-making positions.”
One of the goals set forth in the Sixth Congress of the Comintern was to use poor, suppressed American black people. Sol Auerbach (also known as James S. Allen), author and publisher, was instrumental in introducing Marxism to the south, the Democratic Party, and to American Black leaders. He did this by going to Russia and being trained there to develop and spread propaganda within the United States. His entry into the south was by defending in the Southern Worker (The Plight of the Boys), known as the Scottsboro Boys. Probably the best thing a communist ever did in this country. He gained many converts to the Communist Party USA, most of whom were black.  (Goodman, 1994)
Manning Johnson, a black communist turned informant, was also taught by James S. Allen among others, to spread the Socialist message to other blacks. His book, Color, Communism, and Common Sense, was the basis for G. Edward Griffin’s 1969 motion picture lecture More Deadly than War: the Communist Revolution in America. Manning Johnson testified (op. cit.) that the Communist Party USA intended to use the black sharecroppers’ union et al to start a black belt in the south that would be autonomous and eventually cede from the union. This is the reason the organization known as Black Lives Matters is so popular today even though the founders admit that they are “trained Marxists.” This makes the case for the racial strategy aspect of the Sixth Congress of the Comintern.
Yuri Bezmenov, also known as Tomas David Schuman — a KGB defector — operated a disinformation dissemination operation in India, before his defection to Canada. He points us to the second method of attack on the United States. That is the insidious infiltration of academia by the Marxist doctrine. In Griffin’s film, Bezmenov very clearly lays out facts such as the Soviet’s budget for espionage being divided into spying and disinformation/propaganda, with 85% of the budget going to the latter. He also throws light on the tactic of brainwashing the American public through the public system of education. He explains that a generation or two of people fed propaganda in public education will lack the critical thinking skills to recognize falsehoods foisted upon them by academia, even when presented with facts. (ibid) They will hold that their “truth” is much more valid that any fact presented to refute them.
Andrew Breitbart, pointed to this in his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World. The Frankfurt School’s escapees from World War II brought the concept of Cultural Marxism through Critical Theory. We have been at war with Marxists all this time. And we see its fruits and the ruination of our nation.
I will leave the Gentle Reader with a question: What can be done?
Woe to them that call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. — Isaiah 5:20
